NEW YORK (6/29/10 CUNA)–Consumers need to find a way to join a credit union to be able to enjoy all the great resources they offer, said an ABC News correspondent Monday.
“I was once again reminded what phenomenal resources credit unions are,” said Elisabeth Leamy, ABC News consumer correspondent, in a segment titled, “Save Big Money on Home and Car Loans: Go to Credit Union for Auto Financing.”
“In fact, if you are in the market for a car, you have GOT to find a way to join a credit union, if you’re not already a member. You can find one you are eligible for at Find a Credit Union. Or to see if you are eligible to join SIU Credit Union, click here.
“Credit union auto financing is generally such a great deal that I’m going to issue a rule here: never shop for a used car at a dealership without first getting outside financing quotes, especially from a credit union,” she added.
Leamy then compares car loan interest rates at her credit union with those of area banks. See the full report here.
